    schema:description "Good Pharma describes a working model of institutional integrity that bypasses the many ways that commercialized research has corrupted transparent science, valid results, and trustworthy clinical practice. It is the answer to Goldacre's book, Bad Pharma - ethical research without commercial distortions that mislead doctors and patients. Drawing on key concepts from sociology and management, this extended case history shows how a brilliant young researcher, Silvio Garattini, built an independent, ethics-based research institute to develop better medicines for patients, rather than for patenting. The book describes their strategies to block or avoid the troubling practices of commercial pharmaceutical research. Drawing on its public health model, the Mario Negri institute developed the first methods for founding the WHO essential Medicines List and for developing national formularies of effective, safe drugs. The Institute was an early supporter of the Cochrane Collaboration. It has developed clinical trials as a public good that are much cheaper and more rigorous than commercial trials. The public-health model of the Mario Negri Institute offers breakthrough and successful methods for developing better drugs at lower cost. -- from back cover."@en ;
